    The Thorobreds traveled to Maysville, Thursday, to match up with the Saints of St. Patrick.  The game, which was played with only two officials, had some calls which were questioned by both teams, likely due to the absence of one official.

    I remember meeting a woman at the State Fair years ago that brought in a similar bag of tiny tomatoes. She said the plants were popping up here and there in the garden, not like anything she had ever planted.  
    There is a variety of teeny-tiny tomatoes called red currant tomatoes, but likely her diminutive crop is a cherry tomato hybrid from years past that had reverted back to the wild.
